Acquaintance is a budding UK producer who also heads up the strangely named Anti-Ghost Moon Ray label. The imprint's next release is set to come from Acquaintance himself in the form of the four-track Parapsychology EP, from which the featherweight "Aerial" has been pulled. Built atop a mellow bounce, the tune fashions a rich melodic lattice from bubbling arpeggios and tender synth plucks—choosing not to launch into a full stomp across its nine-minute run, but rather to allow the understated drums beneath to provide a crisp rhythmic bed for the producer to unfold an ever-increasing array of heavenly elements. Acquaintance's three other similarly infectious excursions into blissful electronics can be heard when his Parapsychology EP drops on November 4.
